groups and caused the violence and he blames or some opposition groups he said he was serving the remnants of the former regime to overthrow his new dismissed authority and basically rejected any use of violence in the form of protesting however he did call for dialogue he asked opposition forces to meet him on saturday the eight to december to talk through some of the points of they have with this constitution the coalition of opposition forces who are running a sit in into her square the national revolution front issued a statement saying that they would not have dialogue with the president until he rescinds his decree thousands gathered at the presidential palace in opposition to president morsi is decision my colleague tom barton who was there on the scene and has this report some of the protesters behind me are trying to move the barricades that have been put up by the army in front of the presidential palace in cairo a very tense standoff the fairly large crowd here directing large chanting of us
9:03 am
live in such as we watch the john fall of the regime calling or see the new their own gyptian president mohamed morsy supporters was here in the day over on the other side of our face and there was this it was a standoff between pro and anti mohamed morsi protesters and some of the country's top judges i'm the opposition like the people here on one side very much against i want to show that they say doesn't provide your rights for minorities and women in a no vote in egypt the political situation is a very trying dockage the fear the violence we saw last night i think they repeated despite the army and the security services best efforts. instead of uniting the nation mohamed morsi his address seems to have divided it even for the more but dr weil need for s a contant terrorism adviser to the u.s. congress says that despite the opposition's determination to make
9:04 am
a morsi back down he has a strong chance of keeping the new policy his hand and himself. the country is clearly split but mr morsi is strong because he has many institutions under his control the parliament the presidency the upper layer of the army now has replaced many officers in his calculations on december the fifteenth he will win because the most organized force now in egypt at least for the next few months is the muslim brotherhood and their allies the salafist they've gotten a majority in the parliament with allies of course they've got the president elected with allies and now some of his allies have abandoned him but they don't have the strength to organize and reach out to citizens the way the muslim brotherhood have so this looks like a recipe for a long. civil uprising against the government i am not sure that this is going to go immediately into what people think could be a civil war on less acts of violence are going to continue day after day and that's
9:05 am
what morsi was concerned about the syrian rebels have to clear the country's main international airport a military zone warning civilians and airlines their perch at the risk the u.s. is concerned rebel breakthroughs could force the government into a chemical attack something the white house says would trigger foreign intervention washington reportedly believes the president assad is preparing to use chemical weapons and as artie's than it can reports allegations could be all it takes. u.s. officials said intelligence agencies have detected that assad's government has been preparing its chemical weapons stockpiles for possible use the obama administration's message to syria the u.s. is ready to act if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable there will be consequences. there will be consequences we have sent a unmistakable message that this would cross
9:06 am
a red line next how does america the media quickly picked up on the alarming news of the syrian government's alleged plans citing secret intelligence for fox news confirms that syrian troops now have the deadly nerve agent sarin gas weaponized and at the ready the syrian government flatly denied the possibility saying it would not use such weapons against its people. we would not commit suicide we feel there's a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries during creasing pressure on syria the syrian government sure knows that if they use chemical weapons it would give nato and some of their arab neighbors who are itching to intervene in syria the green light to go ahead with their plans damascus itself says it would be suicidal for them to do so but with the fear and the hype building up over the use of chemical weapons against civilians in syria it seems the u.s. might be preparing grounds to jump the gun on this one the jumping the gun scenario
9:07 am
is not new for the u.s. almost twenty years ago the bush administration confidently presented false evidence to invade iraq we have and descriptions of biological weapons factories on wheels and on rails in beijing triggered a civil war that killed more than one hundred thousand innocent iraqis and years later all washington had to say about this was the president thought it was correct congress thought it was of course i regret that it turned out a lot of it was wrong in the run up to the iraq invasion the us media was instrumental in selling the case to the public the congress never had any proof ever present ever of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair cheney and bush who writes now that the u.s. has drawn a red line on syria it has made it clear it's ready to take action but how i'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of. credible evidence that the assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons
9:08 am
against their own people but suffice it to say we are certainly planning to. take action if that eventuality were to occur to american warships are already near the syrian coast with some. one thousand u.s. marines and dozens of fighter jets on board on top of that nato is sending american german and dutch batteries of patriot anti-aircraft missiles to turkey's border with syria meaning hundreds more u.s. and european troops will be deployed to the frontier nato says deploying patriot missiles along syria's borders is a defensive step to prevent syria from attacking turkey i don't think there's any requirement whatsoever for patriot batteries on the ground in turkey again the patriot missiles are designed to really protect primarily against incoming fire ballistic missiles or aircraft the syrians are not going to attack the turks the
9:09 am
church of the most powerful military establishment in the region the largest army in nato and intervention in syria will be as bad if not worse than what we experienced in iraq the pentagon said they would need seventy five thousand troops to secure syria's weapons of mass destruction the question on everyone's mind is are they seriously considering that kind of a mess of intervention because that could mean another you rock coming soon an invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm going to check out. instead of issuing warnings for the syrian government to the international community should be concerned about and to fight is using chemical weapons that's the view of middle east expert tough become meat. i don't see the regime style is the star that will likely use chemical weapons against his people and how how over when it comes to the jihadists attacking him. in the last moments you never know what can happen again you have these forces important
9:10 am
to mention a vital issue here that the jihadists are even more dangerous these chemical weapons in their head so if you are sold that the regime may use this chemical weapons of course ability that the jihadist will use it again with their opponents will be much much more all the jihadists have no problem to behead people alive you deal with people like bin ladin and the radicals of al qaida who have no his it is to use any form of work to really like control any place. religious believes in ideology. and there's unverified evidence to suggest in there the anti asaad forces may actually be seeking to launch a chemical attack on their own party dot com we have a video where an alleged rebel fighter uses a deadly gas non-animal promising to do the same to government supporters. a student has been found guilty in a british court of involvement in

a cyber attack on global online payment companies paypal visa and mastercard were targeted after it blocked off funds meant for whistleblower inside wiki leaks the twenty two year old who has maintained his innocence is now facing a jail sentence his lawyer smith is following the case. is basically a revenge attack against those companies that blockaded wiki leaks so pay pal mastercard things and other online payment companies they they banned wiki leaks from taking payments through their organization which is actually brought with lease to its knees and anonymous the active online activist organization ten. this put this block on them as well a distributed denial of service attack christopher weatherhead has been convicted of participating in that attack and now this is a crime it's a crime that's called conspiracy to impair the operations of computers but it is ultimately a crime of protest what anonymous were doing was saying you know you can't as big
9:12 am
organizations cut off wiki leaks from their funding without seeing some kind of retribution and this was the retribution that they planned and computer activists here in the u.k. are saying that the criminal justice system really by finding christopher weatherhead guilty is sending a message basically that financial institutions can cut off organizations with impunity but when the people try to fight back there's hell to pay the full force of the law comes down on them now as i say. christopher weatherhead is waiting for sentencing at the moment he's already been convicted but the maximum sentence that he could receive for this crime is ten years in prison but it's pretty interesting to know all of the crimes that also carry a maximum sentence of ten years and they include some extraordinary things if you compare this impair in the operations of computers they include threats to kill also rioting right down to some sex offenses involving children and also burglary

9:14 am
squad saying that his watch was not a weapon here rated custody for twenty four hours and was charged with the crime anyways a spokesman for the el meter county sheriff's department said that the man's watch had all the components to make an improvised explosive device minus the explosive material you know having a lighter in your pocket is also everything you need to self exposure minus the gun powder but before we make a victim out of this watch where i have to point out one thing the watch she was wearing was designed to look like some sort of bomb with fuses and wires and switches so who's more idiotic someone who wears a device that looks like a bomb on an airplane or a government who convicts someone for having the components of a bomb without that bit of the bomb that makes a blow up i'd say both are pretty dumb but that's just my opinion.

9:23 am
countries dubbed as the magnitsky act after moscow attorney who tragically died in two thousand and nine. the legislation seeks to name and shame russian officials allegedly involved in corruption and offense effectively forbids them from traveling to and investing in the united states now this move was met with a furious response here in moscow with the russian foreign ministry saying publicly that it is nothing quote but a vindictive desire to counter russia in world affairs it is quote perplexing and propose to hear human rights complaints from the united states where torture and kidnappings are illegal in the twenty first century they went on to tweet that quote apparently washington has forgotten what year it is and still thinks the cold war is going on the u.s. decision to impose visa and financial sanctions on certain russian citizens is like something out of the theater of the absurd russian foreign minister say to sergey lavrov had said that in response russia will be imposing
